Matthew 14:22-33; Mark 6:45-51
One day, after Jesus was with the crowd for the whole day and sent them away, He made his disciples got into a boat to go to the other side to Bethsaida. Then Jesus climbed up to a mountain and pray by himself.
At evening, the boat was at the middle of the lake. Jesus saw His disciples were straining at rowing the boat because the wind was blowing against the direction where the boat is going.
At midnight four o’clock, Jesus decided to walk over the lake to reach the other side. He was about to passed by his disciples when they saw Him.
The disciples were shocked. They thought that a ghost was walking on the water. They grew afraid and cried out.
But Jesus came walking on the water to them and said, “Don’t be afraid. It is Me.”
When Peter saw it is Jesus, he said to Him, “Master, if it is you, tell me to come to you.”
So Jesus said, “Come.” Peter came out of the boat and began to walk on the water towards Jesus. When Peter saw the strong winds that are blowing so hard, he was afraid and he began to sink in the water. Peter cried out,”Lord, save me!”
Jesus held out his hand and caught Peter up.
Then Jesus said to Peter,”You of little faith, why do you doubt?”
After that, Jesus and Peter got into the boat and the wind stopped blowing against them. His disciples were amazed and marveled at each other.
